Seasonal Pie
Best tasted in season, no?
Joy is in tasting

-- Doc

Philosophy is
Our attempt to reason why
We all love the pie

Do not reason why
Ours is but to eat the pie
When gone, do not cry

Oh circle of life
Many layered crust surrounds
Deep meaning within

Behold apple pie
Flaky warm and star-spangled
Slice of pure freedom

In your own abode
May pie always be present
And be a la mode

Kitchen samurai
Create your own rising sun
Round, red, cherry pie

-- Pie Plato




The smacking of lips!
Then comes a huge, happy smile
The joys of being pie-faced!


You must apply pie
Before going in the sun.
Pie is delicious.

--Rooty Tooty

Ripen on leafy green boughs

Mature fruit in golden crust
A year of good life

To inspire you: 

Is your pie full round?
Can three point one four be found?
Pie with Pi is sound.

---Christina R. Larlee


O, circle of joy!
     Fall, winter, summer and spring
         You always delight!

Seven pies repose.
    Eyes explore; how to decide?
       Where’s the whipped cream, Mom?

Awaiting spring thaw:
    Heaped atop a cherry pie
        Ice cream slowly melts.

Pies for the asking
Bet I can eat more than you!
Or so I've been told.



Pie in the sky is
wild but pie in the pool is
filled with good people.



Homemade pie, sublime
The hungry beast is sated
Who needs dinner now?

Not without pie first.

When both pumpkins and apples
Come ripe to table

Crisply awaiting pie-ness
On the kitchen floor

Crisp sweet apples piled way high
Drizzled cream, big slice!

Accept your sad fate
Apples, pumpkins, pears, pecans
It is time for pie
